Mountaineer or Anderson Cabin. George Anderson, a miner and blacksmith, worked as a guide in late 1800's, and escorted visitors in Yosemite. In 1875, he was the first person to climb Half Dome. He spent his winters in this cabin at Big Meadow (now called Foresta), and his summers in Yosemite Valley. The cabin was moved to the History Center in the 1950's or 60's.
